On behalf of the Westfield Democratic Committee, as Chairwoman, I welcome you to this website.

Our goal is to provide information about the Democratic Party in Westfield. We believe that the people of Westfield are its greatest strength. We aim to help realize Westfielders’ hopes and aspirations for our community.

We inaugurated this website at a critical time in our history. Just a few short months before, the appetite for political involvement seemed to be waning. Since the 2016 presidential election, the demand for political information and interest in political participation has risen dramatically. On January 21, 2017, over a 500,000 people marched in Washington D.C. and 400,000 marched in New York City. Here in Westfield, 7,000 people joined the worldwide outpouring.

A strong desire for civic engagement is clearly evident in Westfield, which is not limited to national and state affairs. Many people have reached out to the Westfield Democratic Committee to volunteer their time and support to address local issues concerning Westfield.

In 2018, our residents will have the opportunity to elect our representative in Congress and a United States Senator as well as four members of the Union County Freeholders. The Westfield Democratic Committee is poised to support our candidates. We urge you to get involved in these campaigns. Please contact me at westfield.dems@gmail.com for information on how you can offer your support or sign up on this site. Be sure to tell your friends about us.

Looking forward to meeting you and rolling up our sleeves together to achieve success in 2018!

Janice Siegel, Chairwoman, Westfield Democratic Committee
